On article Does sensor size still make a difference? (1049 comments in total)

I would think large format makes is easier to make sharper glass, or rather, as light covers larger reception area, glass does not have to be as good as small format to achieve same sharpness.

BubbaHotepUK: Small or large sensors aside, my biggest issue with phoneography is one of ergonomics. I just can't hold a phone steady, compose, make adjustments & take the shot anywhere as near as well I can with even an RX100 or whatever.

Phone shakes always when you press either volume or virtual button to take a shot.

sportyaccordy: Looks like they finally added built in shadow/highlight recovery (I never figured out how to use curves to that effect). Will check this against Capture One to see how it deals with ARW files.

Curves deal only with normal existing pixel values; recovery calls them back from Beyond.

Can you install OSX and have a Hackintosh?

Digital back for this might not be so affordable.

Badrottie: Which one is better Affinty Photo, Photoshop, or, this ONE?

AP plugin support is rather incomplete.
Now does Pixelmator Pro include pro level features like 1-bit color space and duotones? CMYK? Full color profile support?

SirSeth: Has anyone else tried Affinity with Sony RAW? I tried on Win10 64bit with a 6-core AMD and 16GB or ram and it was agonizingly slow. The worst part is that recovering highlights and shadows was the worst results I've seen. Exposure compensation was almost as bad.

So besides the speed thing, is this a Sony RAW thing?

Affinity is also very good in editing TIFs and PSDs. No need to use jpegs.

firemonkey: I don't know where people are getting "slow" from. I'm running Affinity 1.6 on a laptop with an i5 processor and 4 GB of RAM. It's plenty fast, way faster than I'd have expected. I thought I was going to have to buy a new laptop soon, but now that I see how fast Affinity is on it, maybe I'll hang on for a bit longer.

Opening RAW is slow, actual editing is fast.

StanyBuyle: Probably OK for jpeg processing, but for D500, D800 & D850 NEFs it is unacceptable slow.

I develop NEFs with Lightroom, then move them to Affinity as TIFs or PSDs. No jpegs involved.

larrytusaz: I currently use the free Photoshop CS2 and Lightroom 5.7, this could be an interesting switch because yes I hate the subscription model. Does it work with 16 bit TIFFs? The 2-4 actions in Lightroom and Photoshop, can I have those "exported out" somehow or "reveal" the numeric values used for the level of contrast, shape of the curves etc so I could replicate those in here? Can you download the full EXE vs it being an "over the air" installation?

16-bit tifs are no problem, you can also use 32-bit for HDR (but tif does not support that..)
You can replicate a lot of adjustments but they do not necessarily translate exact.
AP is a normal application, install and use.

justmeMN: Locally, "urban explorers" have been known to ignore No Trespassing signs, and fall into abandoned grain elevators. The end result is that fire/rescue employees have to needlessly endanger their own lives to rescue these idiots.

Accidents happen. You cannot protect people all the time and all the places. Common sense helps a lot. And as B.F. said: "He who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither".

privater: With the same price range, better buy a NAS with upgradeable/recoverable capabilities.

NAS is slow.

Gotta use it when density range is too big. But not like presented here.

On article Throwback Thursday: the iPhone 4S (93 comments in total)

4S is iconic, best design Apple has ever made. I moved to SE lately and it is almost the same, but at the end lacks the finesse of 4S. I did shoot some exhibition pieces with 4S so camera is pretty good (processed heavily those images though).

Michael Dbn: The iPhone 4s is a "Throwback Thursday" item . . . hell I only just replaced my iPhone 4 (not s) in January this year! 😀

I replaced my 4s a few months ago with SE. Still wondering if that was smart. But newest apps demand newer OS than 7 which was last comfortable OS for 4S.
